Best Food Ever!!!! Fresh and good. A local told us about this place and we went 3 times in the 3 days we were there. Can't wait to go back and we purchased 2 mason jars of their comeback sauce.

I'm a regular customer of Come Back Shack and am always happy with its service. I use the dine in facilities and drive up windows. CBS offers a good menu with a variety of sauces and trimmings choices. Service is quick and consistently pleasant. The outdoor patio is a pleasant place in summer, and the indoor room is comfortable throughout... More

They have some of the best burgers I've ever had. Nice little place for fast food style and definitely worth the stop.

Imagine Five Guys, but with a California vibe and more options and you get the idea. Wonderful deck when the weather is warm, which in Boone isn't that often. Only disappointment was the coffee shake. Burgers and fries are very good. Served quickly. Fair price.

We ate here while in the area for vacation. The burgers are awesome! So many choices for toppings! I got the fried green tomato style burger and it was one of the best burgers I've ever had. I also liked they have an option for a wheat bun. The fries are awesome too. It's a must stop for us whenever... More

Hubby had been here with the kids and it was great. Tonight however, not impressed. Got my order wrong 2x. Forgot to enter our daughter's order- only got 4 orders despite the 5 papers we turned in. Asked for teriyaki on my burger- which I didn't get either time. Then asked for a side and the server said they "don't... More

Fantastic burger, and includes the option of locally raised / sourced beef (along with other non-beef options). Excellent selection of toppings, and buns - fresh cut fries and shakes made with real ice cream. Great prices, drive thru is quick, seating inside and out is quaint. Wonderful experience!

Thank Ann K
